LEADERS IN ABATEMENT AND REMEDIATION
Private dwellings, hospitals, industrial complexes, and commercial structures - no Asbestos Abatement Project is too big or too small for OCL. We can assist in the design and implementation of any size project. We work closely with Consultants, demolition contractors, sub-trades, authorities, and all stakeholders to ensure the safe completion of all remediation projects.
OCL is available to determine the source cause of mould intrusion, develop a remediation strategy and assist in the retaining of sub-trades to rebuild affected areas. Our emergency response service puts us on scene to minimize the extent of the damage and stabilize the area.
Maintaining the integrity of FireRated Assemblies poses a challenge in new construction, retrofits and code upgrades. OCL can assist in the design and installation of Firestop systems. We are continually updating our database of listings and products to effectively consult on and execute any size project - commercial, residential or industrial.
Lead paint, lead dust, bio-hazards, animal droppings and other Hazardous Materials can be effectively assessed, removed, and disposed of by the team at OCL. Working with authorities, consultants, and stakeholders, we will ensure that your concerns are addressed in a safe and timely fashion.
D. Owen Construction Ltd commenced operations in June 2000, and is incorporated with Dan Owen as President and sole owner. Since then, Owen Construction (OCL) has seen consistent growth in client base, revenue, and employee roster. Our management structure was honed during the first five years of operations, and since then has evolved into a highly effective, efficient, and streamlined business model that can readily adapt to fluctuations in workload.
Along with the high-level staff that has been carefully cultivated throughout the years, Dan treats employees, customers, suppliers, and fellow trades with respect and consideration. It is his belief that what sets one company apart from others is the relationship it develops with the people they employ. OCL has always strived to employ ‘The Best’, and to cultivate a culture of best practices, safety, integrity, and inclusion. We have a highly trained, long-term workforce and we pride ourselves on a very low turnover rate.
On each project, no matter the size, we commit ourselves to providing excellent service while completing the project within budget and on time.
POLICIES & PHILOSOPHIES
While HAZMAT Abatement in itself is not "hazardous", the mention of the word "asbestos" or "mould" does instill uneasiness in those not familiar with the technology and operating procedures of the abatement industry. Our Prime Objective as a service provider is to actuate the required legislated transparency while maintaining the confidence of all project stakeholders. Simply put - we will provide the services required with care and discretion.
OCL has a robust "Self Inspection" policy. All workers are encouraged to participate in Toolbox Meetings & Hazard Assessments. Engaging and encouraging all levels of employees to regard the worksite as "Their Own" is reflective of our corporate policy. Our On Site Project Manager will ensure that jobs are properly executed and close-out documents submitted. Our Field Manager conducts monthly site inspections in keeping with our COR requirements.
We are pleased to offer an emergency response service. Within one hour of receiving an emergency call for service we will respond with a phone call (if we had not answered the original call). Within two hours of receiving an emergency call for service we will have people and equipment on site.
